One of my EarthQuake boys http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZGsyoJ8nEo

This is one of my boys from the Quakes.  He’s a rockstar in his own mind, but one great soccer player.  He’s becoming a Kingdom player and a huge asset to San Jose.  For some reason he is on the side of San Jose public transportation vehicles… also known as buses. 


I’ve decided that I would like to get an autographed bus from Shea Salinas!!

Pre-race CCCX jitters. Sam's sportin his NewCastle United soccer shirt. Only a goalie is nuts enough to downhill

This should be a great race. The course is out here in Salinas... Pretty muddy, way windy. He just did a demo run...

Another Beautiful Day video. Interested in bringing Beautiful Day to your community? let me know http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iOeUUf2d9w

Beautiful Day is a network of churches working in collaboration with businesses, organizations, schools, media, entertainment, government, and health care to UNLEASH Compassion and Justice in the local community in such a creative and innovative way that it is felt by everyone and leaves an impact unparalleled by any group... any where... at any time.


"Beautiful Day helps me believe all over again—church leaders who get it—that God is at work in the world and is inviting us to join him there." 

*** Reggie McNeal author of The Present Future ***


“I want to work towards a stronger partnership with the cities and the churches… and Beautiful Day is great example of how that can work.”

*** Chuck Reed, Mayor of San Jose, 10th largest city in the US ***


“Having tested positive 21 years ago, in a time of misunderstanding and misinformation, it is wonderful to see Beautiful Day reaching out to those with HIV/AIDS.  These actions truly speak volumes about your Christianity.”

*** Ray Mueller, Director of the AIDS Coalition***


“Beautiful Day had a great effect on our campus!  So much so that we are going to make it an annual event.”

*** Terry Swenson  Loma Linda University Chaplain ***


“One of our neighbors asked me why we did this.  I said to bless you and this community.  He looked at me and said, Wow… really? Well consider it a success because my family was blessed!”

*** Todd Gumbrecht, Beautiful Day volunteer ***



“I want to say thank you to all the Beautiful Day people… its so unusual, so amazing, so miraculous, its unbelievable… you have made an impact on us.”

*** Miguel Montes  Principal of Almaden School (after a campus makeover) ***


“The campus looked like grand opening on Monday…how does Beautiful Day get 400 people to show up and clean a campus like that?”

I'm reading World Wide Rave. A helpful work culture-shapers & community leaders/entreprenuers.

I came across Works Wide Rave from a buddy in Nashville. I watched a webcast called "Viral Marketing: How to Create A World Wide Rave"
The concepts on marketing are simple and counter-intuitive to conventional marketing methodologies.
I'm reading through from a church-based, culture shaping, perspective... I must say my head is swirling with new ideas.
I'm wondering how cool it would be if I could get the author out here to the bay area...
